NO.....that size is for suvs and sport trucks
diameter is 3" or so larger than stock size

the size that might work would be a 255/35/18, but there is way more info needed to say if it will or won't work, wheel width, susp, etc.

Suspension is still stock. Everything is pretty much stock.

Stock size on 18 x 8 is 225 40 18, so that's the standard for 8" wide

I run 18x8.5 et35 with 225/40R18 and have no problems. So you'll be just fine.
